The National Graduate Employability Index is calculated using data we collect from leading graduate employers in Malaysia.
Every University is measured based on their employability performance, which is determined by using our index score – which combines the different indicators of employability.
Besides employability indicators, we also include other important gauges such as the perception of a university’s reputation; whether alumni would recommend the university; whether existing students are happy and satisfied at the university, and whether parents are satisfied with the quality of education and employability outcome of their children.
Graduate Employers: Given that the ultimate aim is to allow prospective students and parents to select universities that are rated highly amongst graduate employers, we invited leading employers in Malaysia, ranging from small to medium-sized companies to larger Government-linked and multinational companies to help form our primary employability index.
The survey results taken from www.gradinsights.com form the basis of the matrix that determines a university’s employability ratings.
The main components of the final score consist of the three main questions posed to employers, with each component being scored and aggregated into a final index, with specific weightage for each component.
